Some varieties of marble, granite and quartzite are book matched to help you achieve that continuous pattern over longer distances.
8. Can I really have natural marble or granite benchtop for my kitchen, I’ve heard that it can stain?
Some natural stone can stain, but the good news is that natural stone can be sealed to prevent staining! The degree of porosity to absorb stains depends on the stone type. A good sealer should protect against staining, and not change the look of the stone. Some sealers will protect for years before needing to be re-applied. Ask your stone fabricator about sealing the stone, they may do this for you, provide a sealer to do it yourself or put you in contact with a contractor who perform this service and offers a guarantee.
9. Can we buy natural stone directly from Complete Marble and Granite?
Yes you can, ask us about your stone requirements and we’ll assist you through the process.
10. Can we take photos of your stone?
We encourage you to take photos of the slabs, so you can review them later at home at your leisure, and taking photos of the stone specification sheet will help keep a record of your colour/stone choices.
11. Do we need to make an appointment?
Our friendly staff are available during business hours with no appointments necessary. Once you have chosen your stone colour, you will need to make an appointment to choose your individual slabs.
12. My project is not yet ready to install the stone, can I purchase it now and store it with you until it’s required for my project?
Absolutely! We understand each stone piece is unique and that different shipments will vary in patterning & colouring, so we are more than happy to help you secure the stone of your choice now, and deliver when required.
13. I don’t have a builder, designer, cabinet maker or kitchen renovation company to suggest a stone fabricator to cut and install the stone for my project, can you help me with that?
Yes, we can give you the names of several fabricators who are located in your area and can help you to achieve the results you require.
